Eating Misjudgments or Possible Mistakes

Looking for something different for dinner other than twenty cans of Vienna Sausage and eleven cans of Cream of Chicken soup neatly contained within the food pantry, I decided to make a pot of Pinto Beans.. It has been years since I had a good bowl or two. So, after a overnight soaking of the beans …

I thought I would supplement my Pinto Bean dinner with a boiled egg. It struck me that instead of dirtying another pan needlessly, I would drop an egg in the slow cooking bean water which wasn’t that bad an idea since my future dinner was nearly complete. Along with the soaked beans, I had added beef seasoning, chopped red onions and the likes. The beans had a good while to cook before serving time and for sure, the egg would be boiled and ready to eat … so-to-speak.

In the gadget drawer, I found a pretty good old fashioned egg retriever …

I guess I was somewhat taken back by the curious color of the almost cleaned and ready to eat egg. I don’t remember from my younger years, Easter Eggs changing interior colors … just the outer shell. And they were dyed red, green, blue, yellow and the likes. Never saw an egg colored a shade of dry common dirt with greenish-yellow undertones. Very interesting.

The egg, despite its awkward, somewhat unappetizing appearance, was eatable. Yeah eatable … but I tried my best not to look at it or think about the noticeable and questionable taste. Maybe next time, when beans are on the menu, I will have some pre-boiled eggs that are pleasing to the eye and personal sensitivities.

I was told by my grandfather that if you are destined to hang you'll never drown. I have never been afraid of water . . .

  2. Wonderful dinner! It’s good to have a stash of goods in the pantry, just in case.
    I guess eggs are porous and will take shapes and colors with time and heat.

  3. Still helping others? So awesome!


  4. One of my favourite slow cook meals that include eggs that end up changing colour is a Moroccan dish called Dafina and the pictures are making me want to dig up a recipe.


  5. Now, THAT’s clever!
